A&E’s stunningly tenacious police drama Unforgettable is finally dead and gone, sources confirm.
The Poppy Montgomery vehicle concluded its fourth season last month, and the network has decided against ordering another set of episodes, marking the third cancellation for the series, which started at CBS back in 2011.
That network first put Unforgettable on the chopping block in 2012, after its freshman run failed to impress execs (though, oddly, it did average 12.1 million viewers, not a number to scoff at). CBS later reversed its decision to pull the plug, airing second and third seasons in the summers of 2013 and 2014.
Still unsatisfied with the ratings, CBS axed the show yet again, only for A&E to come to the rescue a few months later and order a fourth season, which premiered in November. This was back when A&E was looking to build up its original programming slate with programs with already existent fan followings, »

Let the jokes begin: Unforgettable has been canceled for the not once, not twice, but third time. Here where you say, "Unforgettable? I forgot that was a show." The Poppy Montgomery series about a detective with a photographic memory started out on CBS's fall schedule and was canceled after one season. The show was canceled in 2012 after one season. Then other networks came calling and CBS reversed its decision a month later and ordered a second season for the next summer. It was renewed again for a third season, another summer run, and then canceled in 2014. That's two cancellations now. However, A&E couldn't forget Unforgettable and ordered a fourth season that premiered in November. Then it canceled »

After being cancelled (twice!) by CBS, A&E picked up Unforgettable for a fourth season. How will the TV series perform on cable? Will it be cancelled again or will it be renewed for a fifth season? Stay tuned.
Unforgettable follows Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery), a police detective who has hyperthymesia -- a rare medical condition that gives her the ability to visually remember everything. She works with Al Burns (Dylan Walsh) and other members of the Major Crimes team of the NYPD to track down the city's most nefarious criminals. The rest of this season's cast includes Alani Anthony, Kathy Najimy, and E.J. Bonilla.
